Egypt's population to hit 91 million

Post by DJKeefy » Mon Jun 06, 2016 11:17 am

Egypt's population is set to hit 91 million at 10 pm on Sunday, only six months after the population reached a striking 90 million, Egypt's Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics (CAPMAS) announced.

CAPMAS said on Sunday the one million increase comes following its announcement of a domestic 90 million in December 2015, according to an official statement reported by state-owned MENA agency.

The domestic population excludes the estimated 8 million citizens living abroad. The total number of the Egyptian population domestically and abroad will be 99 million.

CAPMAS provided a breakdown of the population in Egypt, elaborating that Cairo's population was the largest in terms of population at 9.51 million inhabitants (10.54 % of the country's population), with Giza coming in second with a population of 7.84 million (8.5%), followed by Nile Delta's Sharqiya governorate with a population of 6.7 million (7.4%).

According to the breakdown, South Sinai was the least inhabited with a population of 171,000 (0.18%), followed by New Valley governorate with a population of 233,000 (0.26%), then Red Sea governorate with a population of 358,000 (0.39%).

The agency said that the current population growth rate - 2.4% - resembles one of the most important and dangerous challenges that the Egyptian society faces, adding that the rate was five times that of developed countries and double the rate of developing countries.

"There is no doubt that the continuation of such growth at such a rate would largely affect the ability to accomplish significant progress towards better living standards despite state-led efforts in different fields of economic development," the agency added.

"It's necessary to establish a balance between population growth rates and available resources."

That may be the case Doc, but comparing the two countries on population per square Kilometres of land mass, it is 138.6 for China and 81.6 for Egypt. However the population growth for China was 3.56% P.A. as against 15.56% P.A. for Egypt, so not that far to go in catching up with the Chinese and those were only the growth figures for 2008. :sd

As I will be dead and gone in 2050 I dont really care how much they all breed. According to research that is when the population will be too large for the planet to sustain,all this eco stuff is just like pee-ing in the sea, unnoticable in the long run. So I consider myself lucky to have lived in a good time.
